In Year 6, we aim to create a diverse range of learning opportunities for the children across the curriculum. Below are some examples of the rich, exciting activities that have gone on so far this year.
In PE, we have a large focus on promoting teamwork and leadership through taking part in competitions. The Year 6 boys and girls football teams have been incredibly successful, reaching the finals of the Manchester City Premier League schools tournament, narrowly losing in the final of both competitions. We are most proud of the maturity and sportsmanship our children have displayed at these events!

Our talented writers have been very busy in Year 6!
Out of a class of 30, 22 of the children were chosen to have their poems
published after a Young Writers competition in the Spring Term! Well done, Year 6!
Speaking and Listening – Photo 3
We value how important speaking and listening is across the curriculum,
particularly using drama as a way to enhance children’s learning in key subject areas.
Here, the children have visited the Marist Centre to learning more about Jesus’
Passion and develop their empathy towards how he must have felt on Good Friday.
